Major features

Student feedback

Student feedback has gone from being a minor feature in the portal to a first class part of onCourse.

onCourse now includes the ability to view, edit and approve for publication student testimonials captured through the onCourse portal student feedback process. These testimonials will then become part of the marketing copy of your course pages.

More more information on this feature, please review the Feedback and Surveys chapter in the user handbook.

New editor

Our new editor has now replaced the old CMS. It is more powerful and much easier to use. Built on a modern React framework it allows us to more quickly add new functionality to your site. You now have the ability to roll back to previous site versions as well as suppress certain pages from your sitemap, and you can now edit the 301 redirects in WebDav.

To access the new editor, add #editor to the end of your website URL e.g. www.mycollege.com#editor. You then can log in using the email account associated with your onCourse user account, and password. You must have 'can edit CMS' access rights in your onCourse user account to access the #editor.

Editor API

The new editor now also has an API. This is a very important step forward in the refresh of our technology stack. You can script actions to do anything that the editor UI itself can do, right through to publishing your site.
